Our sale items are made to the same high quality standard as our regular boards. However, these boards tend to be made from the off cuts that are generated when making our end grain chopping boards. Some boards may have some defects which is reflected in the price.
Please note this board has been made from using joined staves . This means shorter lengths of wood have been joined together so may feature some joins along the sides and top of the board which appear stripy. Please study the pictures before purchase.
If there is any defect on the board it will be listed in the description below:
This board has a a few areas that reveal the jointed staves. These are the areas with stripes across some of the blocks. One of these areas has a small void.
Please see photos.
Please study the pictures of each board closely.
What's all the fuss about 'End-Grain'?
END GRAIN CHOPPING BOARDS
An end grain cutting boards surface is up to one and a half times harder than a standard "face grain" cutting board alternative.
The orientation of the woodfibres mean that a knife will slide between fibres rather than cutting them. This means the board surface will last longer.
Regular treatment with our Oil and Wax will cause the board to "self-heal". This will impel the wood fibres to close together around most scratches on the surface; almost bringing back the original surface finish.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR BOARD
Our chopping boards require monthly maintenance in order to keep the looking and working their best.
Applying our chopping board oil monthly prevents your board from drying out and potentiality cracking after repeated washes.
For further protection a special blend on mineral oil and beeswax is applied to the surface. This makes the surface further resilient to water as well as restoring the glossy finish.
Mineral Oil and Chopping Board Wax is also available to buy to ensure your board stays in the best condition.
